Luna’s resolution comes days after Special Counsel John Durham released a report about the FBI’s years-long investigation into the Trump campaign for alleged Russian collusion. Durham determined the FBI should not have launched an investigation into the Trump campaign. He concluded, “the Department and the FBI failed to uphold their important mission of strict fidelity to the law in connection with certain events and activities described” in his report.
Schiff has been a longtime proponent of this Trump-Russia hoax.
“Resolved, That, pursuant to Article I, Section 5, Clause 2 of the Constitution of the United States, Representative Adam Schiff, be, and he hereby is, expelled from the House of Representatives,” Luna’s one-page resolution reads.
“Schiff lied to the American people. He used his position on House Intel to push a lie that cost American taxpayers millions of dollars,” Luna tweeted from her congressional account. “He is a dishonor to the House of Representatives.”
Fact check: all true.
“Knowingly using your position on House Intel to push a lie that ripped apart our country, cost taxpayers millions of dollars, and authorized spying on a US President and then proceeding to double down on the lie within days of the Durham report coming out makes you unfit for office,” Luna tweeted. “Ethics should investigate.”
Earlier this year, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) refused to allow Schiff to maintain his position on the House Intelligence Committee, saying Schiff “has lied too many times to the American public.”
